YOU Be the Judge! is another great activity to use as an alternative to traditional worksheets and textbook pages. Created by Terry Palmieri, this cut and paste experience gives children the chance to practice reading and counting ordinal numbers from 1 to 12 while pretending to be the judge at a pet show. The easy to follow directions card and materials can be used as a center or small group activity as well as whole group instruction. And your students will LOVE to name the pets when they are done ordering the numbers and pet pictures! This activity has been enthusiastically completed by 1st and 2nd grade students who judged it to be a First-rate activity!
